    "Well Done"

    Imagine, Denzel Washington saying, "well done." That's what this reward feels like when you give $5. It's weird how the intangible can feel so tangible - welp... the mystery of giving.

    "I'm Proud Of You"

    Is there someone in your life you seek approval from no matter what you've achieved? Healthy or unhealthy (most likely unhealthy)? Well this intangible gift is like that person looking at you and saying, "I'm proud of you." The years of wanting their approval vanish as you give $10 to support a movie that will change the lives of millions of Americans.

    A Bookmark and all the feelings above

    This is where your generosity gets rewarded in ways you could never imagine. I, Lucy, one of the producers of the film, will provide you with a bookmark for when you're reading and you know it's time to stop but you don't know how to mark your page. This bookmark will allow just that. So when you pick up your book again, you will know exactly where you left off. Oh, you can read? Lucky.

    Dad Hat

    Some high fashioned, fun loving people pay $100 for a Dad hat. Maybe I've done that, maybe I haven't - that's not the point. Why not pay for one that helps fund a film with the purest of goals? To get every child in America reading at grade level by 3rd grade. Oh and hey, I'll throw in the other tangible rewards so you can keep collecting activist swag.
